Dear MendMeShop,

So far, so good! I've used the shoulder treatment 4x a day for a week now and seen a marked improvement in my shoulder with both flex ability and pain relief. P.S. As a follow up one week after the initial comments... Indeed, after a couple weeks of use, the pain totally subsided. Thanks!!!

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Exercises/Prevention/Rehabilitation

Braces help to stabilize the wrist.

At the onset of carpal tunnel pain immediate measures should be taken in order to avoid permanent damage of the median nerve. Ignoring the symptoms thinking they will go away naturally and continuing with activities that cause wrist and hand pain will certainly lead to more serious problems in the future.

In order to avoid serious CTS injuries try to maintain a straight and relaxed wrist position. Repetitive tasks with a bent wrist like typing, playing an instrument and even driving puts your wrist at risk. Doing simple things like using a wrist support at your keyboard or making sure that your keyboard is in the prone position rather than elevated will help keep your wrists in an ergonomic position. It would also be wise to take frequent short breaks to stretch your fingers and thumb.

MendMeShop® Success Stories

Below is a simple to follow stretching routine you can perform before beginning work and frequently throughout your work day. Performing dumbbell exercises with light-weights (2 lbs) to loosen and strengthen the area will help defend against injury. These exercises are used as a precautionary measure and should not be practiced by those who already suffer carpal tunnel pain.

Being limber counts for a lot under repetitive conditions. If you suffer from mild carpal tunnel, these strategies could help you avoid further injury and surgery. Remember, many of these strategies are precautionary and help guard against carpal tunnel injury. If you feel pain or discomfort while exercising or stretching your wrists stop immediately.

Stretching

Here is a quick stretching routine to be performed daily before and during your work day.

  1. Extend and stretch both wrists and hands upwardly as if pressing against a wall. Hold for a count of 5.
  2. Return wrists to a relaxed straight position.
  3. Make a tight fist with both hands and then bend down at the wrist maintaining a clenched fist. Hold for a count of 5.
  4. Return wrists to a relaxed straight position.
  5. Repeat these stretches 10 times and then relax your arms at your side and shake them out.

Treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

In order to relieve these symptoms of CTS, the goal is to stop the swelling or compression of the median nerve to relieve pain and reduce inflammation. In order to accomplish this, rest and immobilization is a must. To treat the swelling, pain, inflammation and compression quickly, you can effectively use ColdCure Technology® and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy conveniently in your own home.

Dear MendMeShop,

The Shoulder Inferno wrap is working well for my shoulder bursitis. I went to my primary care doctor this week, and she was very interested in the treatments and the success - when little else was working in the last 5 months. My shoulder pain has gone away completely, and so I am obviously very pleased with the results.
